NJ Congressman Wants Tax Hike on Guns and Ammo [AUDIO]

The Gun Violence Prevention and Safe Communities Act would:
  • Increase the excise taxes on firearms from 10%-11% to 20%.
  • Increase the excise tax on ammunition from 11% to 50%.
  • Exempt all US government agencies from tax.
  • Maintain the exemption for state and local governments, including police departments.
  • Increase the Special Occupational Tax on firearm importers, manufacturers and dealers.
  • Include assault pistols in the definition of firearms covered under the National Firearms Act.
  • Increase the transfer tax on all weapons (except antique guns) covered under the National Firearms Act (excludes most common guns) from $200 to $500 and index to inflation.
  • Increase the transfer tax for any other weapon from $5 to $100 and index to inflation
  • Redirect revenue raised by the Act to: 35% COPS; 35% Project Safe Neighborhoods; 10% CDC Research; 5% National Criminal History Improvement Program; and 5% NICS Act Record Improvement Program; 5% and grants to schools and districts to implement comprehensive, evidence-based discipline systems to improve school climate.

Make it a package deal start with New Jersey and add DC, New York, Conn, RI, Mass and California. The bottom feeding fish will be happy.

Somebody posted this comment at the bottom of that article, and it is ABSOLUTELY PERFECTLY SAID

"If the proposal was to tax prescriptions to fund drug enforcement, people would be outraged by the unfairness. If the proposal was to tax automobile sales to fund a program to prevent reckless driving or to tax gasoline sales to fund DUI enforcement, the absurdity of the proposal would be self-evident. If the proposal was to tax cutlery sales to prevent stabbings, the lack of efficacy would be indefensible."

"But they are talking about gun control. Our government has proven time and again that gun control has nothing to do with the fairness, appropriateness, or effectiveness of the law. Gun control is all about using the hoplophobic insecurities of the general population to garner support for laws intent upon the control and persecution of law-abiding firearm owners."

This has got to be one of the Brady Bunch's ideas. Mike Ross, one of the 12 people running for Boston Mayor, has proposed the same kind of tax on firearms and ammo sold in Boston. That would generate what? $27.53 a year?
